In 1996 the Board of Governors also created a First Nations Council to provide a process of direct consultation with First Nations communities in the college region, with the intended outcome that feedback would provide direction in the strategic and operational planning of the college through a policy framework. Communication links have been implemented through the regular reports to the Board from the Chair of First Nations Council.
The First Nations Council's focus will be to develop policy recommendations based upon the educational issues and strategies of First Nations Communities to increase student success rates in the Northwest College region.
First Nations Council policy recommendations will focus on student advocacy, program promotion, curriculum design, cultural issues and content, program and education service evaluation and will assist Northwest Community College in improving its relationships with First Nations communities in the Northwest college region.
Barbara McRae is the First Nations Council Chair and Charlotte Guno is the First Nations Council Vice-Chair.
